The New England Percussion Ensemble specializes in presenting creative and energetic audience-interactive enrichment programs to youngsters.

The Performers

To quote one of my staff, ‘…when a program can keep the attention of 800 plus 7th and 8th graders you’ve done a great job; and when the staff also enjoys the program you know it’s an A+ program.

About The Performers

All New England Percussion Ensemble (NEPE) members are top notch musicians and educators, carefully selected not only for their versatile performance skills but also for their outstanding ability to communicate effectively and relate positively with audience members, regardless of age. NEPE appears most often as a trio, but duet and quartet presentations are available.
